I fancy getting beaten.
i need xbox live real bad. anyone got any free codes? +copy of fifa please?
and it's credit crunch busting! You don't have to leave the house! Ever again!
I owe you for the Arsenal tickets and a no show at the weekend.
Bit knackered from Obamarama but maybe tomorrow night. No hurry on Arsenal money innit.
After I get back from Judge_Bonino and fencing
i think i left a one month code in the GTA i traded in. i'm gonna headbutt the wall.
i think i will trade PES for fifa. PES is boring me titless.
I played it for a while and really didn't enjoy it compared to FIFA. For the first time ever.
should i get fifa instead? really?
I couldn't give a crap about licences and real teams, I'm all about the gameplay. PES on the PS2 was the pinnacle, but all of the next gen PES games have been poor at best. EA have finally made a fun, fast, enjoyable FIFA game that makes PES look dull and annoying in comparison.
The online play is fantastic, the game is a lot smoother and more fun. The Be A Pro mode is genius and when you actually have the licences, there is a lot of fun to be had. Particularly with League Two BATTLES.
So yes, I truly recommend FIFA 09 over PES 2009 on the Xbox 360.
but i dont have an Xbox anymore
i dont really want to jump ship. Is it worth buying considering I haven't bought a pes game in 2 years?
It's the most fun football game since PES5 on the PS2.
I'm totally hooked and am training in between posting on here. Though I really should go to bed.
i'll miss lawro and champion though. I was kind of looking forward to that. apparently they managed to ruin the commentary even more this year.
i only got an xbox on saturday.
we will play long into the night and i will lose my jobs and you will drop out of uni. everyone's a winner.
lets be that guy.
came online. But he's playing Lego Batman :(
'crablin wants to chat' and i have no idea how to work the headset so i just ignored you. SORRY.
lego batman > fifa
i got a 48 hour code and then tried pes online. what a fucking embarrassment. complete lag-fest which resulted in an unplayable game. also my opponent picked brazil and didn't pass the ball in my half at all, instead running with one of his many ridiculously skilled players and shooting from 40 yards, giving him a 2-0 lead at half time which was the point i decided i had enough and i will be trading in the game tomorrow probably. fucking pathetic.
so fifa eh.
pes online is fucked.
can't believe i didn't learn from last time. i'm looking forward to getting fifa now. was playing the demo before and it was pretty damn good.
and grab an instant xbox live 12 month code on here for cheapo
Strangely the online mode in PES6 wasn't bad- they haven't got it right the last couple of years. To boast about online functionality on the box and to be regularly unplayable isn't on really.
the gameplay surpassing PES on the next gen consoles now.
and has still yet to really progresss into next gen stuff- the animations don't look right, especially the running animations. To still have the same number of teams, less stadiums and no proper edit mode for 2 years is pretty lame. Still no revamp to master league either!
Involving DiSers and the playing of this game.
Has there been any progress with the DiS team he set up, does anyone know?
but I think he's pretty into Lego Batman right now.
On another forum they have a league and fixtures and stuff and I'm jealous.
but I was having trouble setting up the squad so does someone else want to give it a shot?
I'd definitely be up for a league or a tournament though! Do you fancy setting it up, Colin?
and it's not scary (Y)
Yes, I'll give it a look when I'm back tonight.
Think ibzo is going to pick it up today but can other people add me?
gamertag = crablin
or will this give me a wonderful excuse to make an Excel spreadsheet to track all results/topscorers/fair play table? :D
But I was proposing doing one-offs and detailing everything in spreadsheets on the net. I'd like to get about eight people on it if possible.
I'm in, deffo.
I'd even be up for playing a fixture this weekend :)
Would we work it on trying to play a fixture a week?
So I think we should loosely just play each round of fixtures as and when.
I would like to play you at some point soon for sure though. Tonight perhaps? I'm away until Sunday night after that...
and we'll have a game if I see you on :)
and will be home around 9.30-10ish, so I'll see you after if you're on.
I'll be back between 10 and 11, hopefully :)
i'm gonna have a go soon.
ESPECIALLY as you're an Evo 'switcher'. I persevered and now I'm walking in a FIFA Wonderland.
i just had my first game and i loved it. it felt much nicer to play than PES.
chelsea 2-1 derby. a stunning goal from ballack and a tap in from deco gave me the lead, before barnes got one back due to sloppy defending. i'm thinking about the next game i'm gonna have already.
It takes a lot of getting used to but it feels so different..
Just the first touch with the right stick gets me going though in truth...
then using the finesse short to curl one in the top corner from just inside the box... magic.
i just played a quick match real quick. how do i do this manual control? what is it?
On 'assisted' the ball will automatically be aimed at the player you're passing to.
On manual the precise direction of the analogue stick determines where the ball goes, so you can play it slightly in front of a player.. it makes passing a lot more organic and it looks less rigid.
it sounds pretty good, i think i'll turn it on after a couple more games like this.
See you online later!
My gamertag is matthbh.
I'm a Pro Evo switcher and I LOVE THIS GAME.
join the club.
matthbh, commandercool48 and ibzo to Real Social Board. If anybody else is online, add me, crablin to your Live account and let's have a game!
Go into your FIFA 09 player hub thingy in the Xbox Live section of the game and you should have an invite there. Then we can join forces and dominate the gaming world.
I missed commandercool by 3 minutes!
its that easy.
and a free month indeed.
its all there ready for. use the free month, then invest in the yearly subscription. its pennies considering how much play you'll get out of it - if you're on half as much as i am, you'll get your monies worth.
use your gamertag choice wisely. you can change it afterward.....
'we all call him taffy'
then im taking yo ass downtown etetcetcetec
i swear i could play it for hours.
russia are my favourite team to play with right now. arshavin is a little genius.
but was engaged in some fun with commandercool. Let's set a time soon when we can three-way up for some games against each other and against other clubs!
saw that both of you were playing fifa and felt a little bit left out, like a man watching his wife kissing another man or something. we should play soon.
you can make your own soundtrack, so it's irrelevant alvarez.
i cant fucking wait. its pretty much the greatest song i've ever heard.
i has the fifaz.
i'll give you my xbox live thing when i sort it out.
